Ian Kinnear
Ian Kinnear ist einer der bekanntesten schottischen Smallpipe- und Uilleann Pipesbauer.
Er hat viele Kunden in Deutschland und jetzt bietet sich die Möglichkeit mit ihm Musik zu machen, um neue Techniken zu lernen und zu entwickeln. Ian hat seit 1990 Pipes unterrichtet und 12 Jahre lang seine eigenen Kurse in Schottland geleitet. Sein Workshop bei uns findet zum 4. Mal statt.

Dieser Kurs richtet sich an „Bellows Smallpipers“ die etwas Erfahrung, besonders mit „Bellows Smallpipes“ in A mitbringen.
Der Schwerpunkt des Workshops liegt darin, das Beste aus seinem Instrument heraus zu bekommen und die Fähigkeit zu entwickeln, beim Spiel mit anderen Pipern und Musikern Spaß zu haben. (In keinem anderen Workshop wird so viel gelacht!).

Wir schauen uns 3 – 4 Tunes an, entwickeln an ihnen Harmonien und betrachten verschiedene Ansätze der Verzierungen.

Die Kurssprache ist auf Englisch

Ian began playing pipes at the age of 10, when he was taught by John McDougall and David Taylor. Whilst studying geography at Edinburgh University he continued playing pipes with Scottish Gas pipe band and Edinburgh University OTC pipe band. During this time, he also tutored at the University Bagpipe Society and the innovative Adult Learning Project in Edinburgh.

Ian played on the album “Out of the Blue” recorded by Scottish Gas Pipe Band in 1993.
Ian began making Scottish Smallpipes in Edinburgh in 1993. Piping has taken him to many parts of the world where he has given solo performances and played as a member of pipebands, and smallpipes and folk ensembles (Brittany, Portugal, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, Ireland and USA). He has also been privileged to judge piping in Brittany.

Since Ian began making smallpipes in 1993 he has developed his chanter reed to produce clarity of tone and volume. He has used this as his basis for perfecting the design of his drones and chanters to achieve the ultimate balance of tone and volume. His smallpipes are recognised as “smallpipes…big sound!”

Every aspect of his pipes has been carefully thought out – they are not merely museum copies. Ian came to small pipe making to produce an instrument that would fulfil his needs as both a solo instrument as well as one that blends well with other instruments in session and band settings. It is testament to this that many of the big-name bands in Scottish traditional music such as “The Battlefield Band” and “Tannahill Weavers” have used Ian’s small pipes over many years.

From the size of the bag and bellows to the design of the reeds and the chanter bore, Ian has rethought every aspect of small pipe and Uilleann pipe manufacture to produce a sound and playing experience enjoyed by students and professionals alike.
This will be a unique opportunity to meet and work with Ian Kinnear here in Germany.
